Unfortunately, we cannot afford to give drinks tokens to everyone on the crew. We do, however recognize the need for team leaders to show their appreciation to their respective teams and particularly to thank those that have gone beyond the call of duty.
We are introducing a policy that should allow this, while at the same time not relying entirely on drinks tokens.
We need to know how many people are under each team leader and how long they are going to be on site, so we can ensure that an amount of alcohol and provisions (not from the festival bars) is allocated into their control to look after their teams.
All team leaders need to be responsible for the fair and responsible distribution of this stock.
On top of this a limited number of drink tokens (redeemable at the bars) will be allocated to team leaders to be a used as a special thank you for the people who work especially hard and / or long hours, do particularly difficult / unpleasant / unglamorous jobs, or go above and beyond when needed.
However much we’d like to, we can’t afford to give them to every volunteer.
And we can’t give them to people who are being paid a fair fee unless there’s a good reason.
CLAIMING DRINKS TOKENS AND A CARRY OOT FOR YOUR TEAM:
Phone or send and email to Operations with the size of your team and a reasoned request for your desired carry out, along with a list of those that you think are likely to deserve either 1 or 2 drinks tokens at the event. (N.B. An additional number of tokens will be added to your request once approved based on your team size to allow for flexibility)
All requests will be looked at fairly and will need to be approved. Carry out pick ups will be arranged and you will be able to collect the drink tokens from the Production Office on site.
